All AuPairCare au pairs arrive at your home fully trained and ready to provide exceptional child care. The au pair you select for your family has hundreds of hours of childcare experience, carefully checked references, and a proven commitment to caring for children. Because safety and quality care are our top priorities, all au pairs receive rigorous training before they come to your home. Our au pair training program, Au Pair Academy*, is designed to provide au pairs with an introduction to their year in America and to provide practical training and education about childcare and safety topics. Au pairs conduct their Academy training online through interactive courses and webinars and fly directly to your home airport. All au pairs caring for children under the age of two are required to have a minimum of 200 hours experience with that age group. From pre-departure virtual learning to on-the-job safety reminders, au pairs receive superior teaching and continued reinforcement of their skills while on program.
AuPairCare also offers two expanded virtual training programs for au pairs who will be caring for infants and toddlers, All About Infants and All About Toddlers. These interactive courses lead au pairs through advanced age-specific training covering developmental milestones, safety concerns, language skills, and play for your little ones. Through quizzes, videos, and resources crafted by an Academy trainer, the courses help your au provide the best care for your family and equip your au pair to become even more proficient in infant or toddler care.
As a host family, you can also select separate Advanced Online Training courses, which cover specific topics such as positive discipline, at-home education, and food and nutrition. AuPairCare is the only agency that offers advanced online training courses for au pairs based on the unique needs of our host families. Regardless of which learning path you choose for your au pair, you can be sure that they will receive the best training for your family.
*We look forward to reopening our in-person Training Academy when it is safe to do so.
